Backfiring and misfiring are one or more of these things.

1. improper ignition or malfunction. 2. lean fuel mixture. 3. worn or defective spark plugs. 4. incorrect carburetor adjustment. basically it needs a tune up.

Wait, is this a new member introduction? Because I don't see much that looks like an introduction, and I damn sure don't see the required new member introduction pics of your ride.

But I do think I see a clear violation of the rule against help questions on the first post!

What's that you say? There are no such rules and everything I just said is BS?

Well there oughta be a law!

But welcome anyway :-)

Miescha, you think I should get the book of newb out and state the law?

@Matthew, welcome to the forum. Tell us a bit more about you excluding your bike issues for the time being . As you can see there's great folks on here that are always willing to help; others like to rib a bit .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Yep, corsair needs to lay down the law.

Farmall has you covered though - time for a tune-up. You'll have that bike running perfect again in no time!
